Work With Your Veterinarian to Make Your Senior Pet's Golden Years Healthy

By Dr. Marty Becker | July 20, 2012

 

When you have an older pet, the most important thing to remember is this: Dying isn’t optional, but suffering often can be.

 

In other words, don’t assume that a sick or elderly pet can’t enjoy many weeks, months or even years of pain-free, comfortable and joyful living. And your veterinarian can help make that possible, because we understand why that’s important, and we know how to make it happen. Working with your veterinarian to help a pet in the twilight of life will add a glow that will make the time precious for you and your pet both.

Hospice: Providing End-of-Life Pet Care

By Gina Spadafori | August 24, 2011

 

One weekend, Nancy Hurley found herself staring at X-rays at an emergency clinic, where she'd taken her elderly Sheltie after the dog fell. Like many pet lovers before her, Hurley heard the advice that no one wants to hear. 

 

“The veterinarian told me that it was time for euthanasia,” says Hurley, who lives in Charleston, W.V. “I thank God I didn’t do that. I dropped the X-rays at my own vet’s the next day, and we started talking options.”

 

The option she chose was hospice, an approach to end-of-life care in which a terminally ill pet lives at home and receives care from what can be a range of experts, such as traditonal and alternative-care veterinarians, physical therapists and mental-health professionals.
